You always get a special kick on Opening Day, no matter how many you go through. You look forward to it like a birthday party when you're a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen.
March 4th and 5th is the annual Lafayette Little League Opening Day Jamboree. This event gives all of our teams the opportunity to play on Buckeye fields and enjoy special Jamboree festivities. We will have baseball, entertainment, and the snack shack open all day Saturday and Sunday.
There is rain in the forecast, so please monitor the league website and your emails. Pictures will be taken on the same day and time as currently scheduled, even if games are canceled. If games are canceled, pictures will move to Burton Valley School.
Parking is a challenge for this event. The Buckeye parking lot is reserved for the volunteers running the Jamboree, the team managers carrying equipment, the shuttle van drivers, picture day staff, the Challenger team, and those involved in running the event. Note that only team managers may park at Buckeye, not coaches. All others must park at the Lafayette Community Park lot or Lafayette Community Center Roller Rink about one mile up St. Mary's Road. A shuttle van will run continuously between Buckeye and Community Park from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. both days. It will pick up in the passenger loading zone just inside the Buckeye parking lot. You are welcome to enter the Buckeye lot to drop off or pick up passengers, but then must proceed around and out of the lot.
There are very few legal parking spots along St. Mary's Road. Please do not park in No Parking Zones, do not enter or block driveways or private roads around Buckeye (not even for drop-offs/pickups), and do not park illegally, as you will be ticketed or towed. Please do not drop players off at the private driveway adjacent to the Majors field. All drop offs must be in the Buckeye parking lot. A parking monitor will be roaming St. Mary's Road to help direct you to the parking lots.
Photo Day Instructions:
